MISSION STATEMENT
The primary mission of the College of Business Administration (COBA) is to provide an innovative, creative, and relevant education in business disciplines to a diverse group of students. We accomplish this mission by creating an educational environment conducive to the fullest development of an individual’s learning and scholarly potential. As a community of scholars, we are committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service to society.

PROGRAMS
The College of Business Administration offers a baccalaureate program leading to the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree with majors in accounting, computer information systems, finance, management, human resources management, marketing, administrative systems, and interdisciplinary business. The College works with departments across the University in developing support fields for the interdisciplinary business degree. It cooperates with the College of Education and Fine Arts in offering a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in business with teacher certification. The College also offers a BS degree in computer information systems for specialists not seeking a business degree, a BS degree in management for those desiring a stronger concentration in the field, and a BS degree in economics. BS degrees are also available in accounting and finance. The College offers the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree in Business Occupations. A degree program offered primarily at the Tarleton University System Center – Central Texas is the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.

The COBA academic program is organized into the following departments:

Department of Accounting, Finance, and Economics
Department of Computer Information Systems
Department of Management, Marketing, and Administrative Systems
The Small Business Development Center is operated by the College with a special service mission to businesses and communities within the University's service area.

TRANSFER POLICY
Community/junior college students who plan to transfer to the College of Business Administration are advised to take the courses recommended for the freshman and sophomore years as outlined in this section. The appropriate department in COBA should be consulted to resolve questions of transferability. Upper-division 3000/4000-level courses taught by the COBA should not be taken at a community/junior college.
Credit for business courses taken at another college or university and transferred to Tarleton to be applied to a BBA or BS degree in business will be awarded on the following bases:

1. Business courses that are equivalent to a 1000- or 2000-level course at Tarleton will be accepted if the course content is considered by COBA to be similar, with a grade of C or better and no other restrictions.
2. Business courses that are equivalent to a 3000- or 4000-level course at Tarleton will be accepted for advanced credit only if they were taken for advanced credit. Some students may petition for credit in upper-level business core requirements by completing a validating examination through either the College Level Examination Program or a departmental examination; such testing requires approval of the appropriate department head and the Dean of the College of Business Administration. If permission is granted for credit by examination, such credit must be completed before taking any classes for which the course is a prerequisite. Validation must be accomplished in the first semester of enrollment at Tarleton.
3. Business courses that are upper level at Tarleton, but are transferred in as lower-level courses, will be accepted for transfer as lower-level electives with no validation exam, provided that the course grade was at least a C.
4. The maximum hours that may be transferred from a community or junior college with validation and applied to a specific major in business (accounting, finance, CIS, management, marketing, or administrative systems) is 9 hours. Under no circumstances may more than 68 semester hours transferred from a two-year institution be counted toward a degree.
